a jury of my peers

according to the commercials for the movie, RENT defined a generation. was it mine? i kind of hope not, because, if it did, i totally missed out. totally.

i kind of think that my generation was defined by transformers: the movie.

I sort of think it was supposed to be our generation, because we were the same age as the characters were when it first came out.

Well, I mean, it defined like 2 years of college for me... that's pretty good, I guess.

I didn't even find out about it til grad school, so I think I was too old to be transformed.

I think "Mannequin" transformed my life, insofar as it made me terrified of mannequins.

After I saw Slacker, I thought, we'll I don't need to make a movie about college now.

They had just finished filming that over at the Warner Bros. lot when I started working there for the summer. There was still a little leftover fake snow on the fire escapes. If you keep your eyes open during the movie, you should be able to spot the alley from the Spiderman upside down kiss scene, the fortune teller's shop from PeeWee's Big Adventure, Annie's orphanage (and all those damn fire escapes the orphans sang on - the 'front' and 'back' are actually two facades right next to each other), Snoop Dogg's bar from Starsky and Hutch, the shop where the dad bought Gizmo in Gremlins, Phil's Bar from Murphy Brown, Eriq LaSalle's apartment from ER, Dick Tracy's police station from the Warren Beatty flick, etc, etc, etc. They use that street in freaking everything.

so what your are telling me is that it is really a fake street that defines our generation? got it.

A fake street, *and* instant mashed potato flakes (the snow). Yup.
